Day 6 - Yesod Sh’b Chesed: Rootedness within Love
Sparks of Divinity are hidden within every person, within all experience, within all creation. Seeking these sparks, revealing these sparks, fills the world with love.
We breathe in the love that flows to us from past generations. Rooted in this love we go forward into the expanse.
Practice for today:
Take time to remember and honor the gifts and blessings you received from loved ones who have passed out of this world. Say their names aloud and give thanks for their lives.
May chesed, generous, abiding love, come through me. (Psalm 119:41)
—Rabbi Yael Levy
The Omer teachings you see here and can receive as nightly email reminders by signing up for our mailing list, are taken from Rabbi Yael Levy's Omer guide, Journey through the Wilderness, which is available as a whole in print or as an ebook.
The daily teachings begin Tuesday March 31 and continue to Shavuot, May 19. A Way In also invites you to join us for our annual retreat in the high desert of New Mexico for the last days of the Counting.
The practice as well as Rabbi Yael were featured in a 2015 New York Times article.
